“He’s doing much better,“ the source said.
 
Cantu is no longer on supplemental oxygen, the source said.
 
He wanted to take an oxygen tank home to facilitate breathing, but the hospital wouldn’t let him because of insurance reasons, the source added.

He’s also an historical figure in the world of poker, being one of just a handful of men to have won both a World Series of Poker title and a World Poker Tour title.
 
Cantu was not vaccinated against Covid, the source revealed.
